Im studying in readiness for pup. Been revising all things puppy. And now we get to the confusing part, how the heck do i understand IPO stuff?
thought i had the sequence of tests as: IPOA, IPO1, IPO3. IPOA being the only one you can take before dogs reaches 18 months?
So why are there all these IPO in training pups on youtube? Id have a monster on my hands if i waited to 18 months surely. so i know ive misunderstood, a LOT perhaps.
Im so confused. Here are the resources, readily available to me/pup locally:
Obedience for competition, beginners, intermediate, advanced. Dogs and people under control socialisation opportunity: all offered at a local club.
Schutzhund Vic has a Eaglemount club. 1.5hrs away. Does anyone know of this club?
If i want a IPO3, as a goal direction. What are the steps to get there, and what age must dog be? 18 months i believe, which begs the question, what are the dogs doing, between 12 weeks and 18 months?
any light would be welcome
